A perfect example is the extended Adirondack chair I mentioned when I was discussing the types. The footrest is added to increase your comfort.
With its elegantly curved back and gently sloping seat, the Fanback series is a great choice for relaxing outside. This chair is appealing to the eye and very comfortable, making it our most popular chair.
The link to the plans seems to have moved to here – love to see it when you’ve made it.
Yours, Mr vipond, is considerably better made and designed. I might just have to have a go at something like this.

While the moose is the most iconic animal in the Adirondacks, the Adirondack chair is the region's most recognizable object. Although there are all kinds of variations today, ranging from colorful plastic chairs to two-person benches, the original design for the Adirondack chair was created back in the early 1900s and lives on in today's popular Adirondack chair designs.
After scouring through hundreds of adirondack chairs, the models listed below scored the best in terms of seat height, depth, and overall height. Unless you can physically try the chairs out in a store, I’ve found these options to be the best for the taller person.
Whether you want to hold family gatherings or social gatherings or you just want to relax outside the house on your own, big and tall Adirondack chairs would be a worthwhile solution to look at.
As a compliment to the Full Size Adirondack Chair, I have designed a Settee Kit to join 2 chairs together. This can be accomplished by building two new chairs from scratch, or joining 2 chairs that are already assembled. Simply remove the adjacent inside arms, join the chairs with 4 boards, then cut out the parts from the templates. After assembly, you will have a comfortable settee, with an extra wide center arm, and a matching lower shelf for magazines or plants. Some settee's I find too wide, and don't seem to match the rest of the chair. The slats in this kit match the size of the two seat slats on the chairs, and the curved arm pieces match the outer arms of the chairs. The front and back edges of the shelves, are also curved to match the proportions of the chairs. I have added an 8' market umbrella to my settee, which provides shade as well as protection from light rainch Plan includes Standard Chair and Settee. The downloadable instructions and templates are on Adobe Acrobat . The 1 square = 1" templates will print clearly for enlarging onto graph paper found at Staples Business Depot or most office supply stores, or you can make your own, with a roll of brown packing paper. They also include step-by-step assembly instructions, with pictures.
Cedar is the most effective softwoods for outdoor furniture, including Adirondack chairs. It possesses all the properties you’ll want in outdoor wood; resistance to water damage, anti decaying, and insect deterrent.

“It is a chair rooted in the history of disease,” is how artist and furniture maker Daniel Mack put it in The Adirondack Chair: A Celebration of a Summer Classic, a 2008 tribute to the quintessential piece of porch furniture.
The best material is high-density polyethylene (HDPE) lumber. Despite its high cost, it is water-resistant and easy to clean by simply wiping it down with soap and a cloth. This material is a synthetic resin that is made to last long but isn’t bulky and heavy. It’s medium weight, making it portable. The material comes from recycled milk jugs, which is sustainable to manufacture.
Fit the 1×3 supports to the base of the legs. Align the slats to the back legs, drill pilot holes and insert 1 1/4″ screws to lock them into place tightly.
You want all of your pieces to match as closely to the template as possible. And you may have cut a few pieces a little rough, or not exactly on the template so you will want to sand the edges smooth. To do this you can use a spindle sander. I admit that I started out clamping matching pieces together to attempt to sand them together. But I eventually gave up on that and sanded each piece one at a time, stopping periodically to compare them to one another. This is the oscillating spindle sander that I have HERE.
